I thought these photos may be of interest - one or 2 are from the Newry Reporter. One of them shows the Margaret Lockington boat & it mentions it's from Tommy O'Hanlon - no relation as far as I know. My screen won't allow me to enhance them but maybe someone else can ?
My late father told me that his father used to be a stationmaster in Omeath but later moved to Newry Bridge St station, & living in Newry at 50 Kilmorey St - the latter probably flats by now !
Brian, Just thought I'd keep in touch. Still talking about our visit. Haven't been up to Holyhead yet. Intend to in the next week or two. Hope you got the e mail. Regards, Phil

Greenore Railway/Maritime museum is located in the cellar in Greenore Co-operative Euston Street Greenore A91KR6K. Also Victorian style Tea Rooms are housed on the lst Floor where you can enjoy Afternoon Tea while dressing in the finery of bygone days.

Christina Marks McMahon Professional Boxer

NEWS FLASH**** NEWS FLASH**** NEWS FLASH****

'Lightning' strikes 'the Big Apple' on 15th September!

by Michael O'Neill

Ireland has had many great male professional champions take the 'Big Apple' by storm over the years but on 15th September comes a unique opportunity to support an Irish female boxer, as she strives to become the World Boxing Council's WBC SuperBantamweight champion.

Ireland's only Professional female titleholder, (she already holds the WBC Interim World Bantam belt) , Christina "Lightning" McMahon from Carrickmacross who has a professional boxing record of 7 wins 0 Losses 0 Draws will take on Jamaican born Alicia ‘Slick’ Ashley a 4 time world champion who held the W.B.C. Super Bantamweight for over 3 years until losing a controversial majority decision in Mexico 12 months ago to former pound for pound champion Jackie Nava.

Ashley is a seasoned campaigner of 33 professional bouts so this will be a huge challenge for Christina who is naturally a Super Flyweight (115lbs) which is two weight classes below Ashley's preferred weight of 122lbs. Ashley has lived in New York most of her life so this will be like a home show for her.

Versatile Christina, a kick boxing champion too, has long been a great admirer and follower of the boxing scene in New York whether male or female and particularly those pugilists of Irish descent, past or present. She hopes that many of those greats like Maureen Shea will be able to attend on 19th September. Why New York you may ask when several other more lucrative offers came her way?

She had a number of offers on the table to choose from including a home show in County Monaghan in October to defend Christina's W.B.C. Interim World Bantamweight Title. Declan Brennan DBSM was at an advanced stage of securing such a bout with a good purse. or taking on Alicia Ashley in New York at short notice for a modest purse.

As money was never Christina's motivation for entering the Professional ranks the option of taking on one of female's most noted professional boxers and the test that this will offer was just too important for her to pass up for an easier option.

Christina's team are hoping the Irish community in New York and neighbouring States will come out in support and make it more like a home show for Christina.

Contracts were signed last week during a meeting with entrepreneur ,Anthony Doran who is also a huge supporter of the 'Irish Homeless Street leagues' which Christina has agreed to support the Ireland squad in their participation in the upcoming ‘ Homeless Street Leagues World Cup' in Amsterdam, September 12-19th.

Christina and her team, headed by husband and coach Martin 'Frick' McMahon (under the guidance of Belfast Professional Boxing coaches Paul & Sean McCullagh ) looks forward to meeting fans in New York so even if you are not already a boxing fan why not come along on 15th September and hopefully witness a famous Irish win and major upset. There will be opportunities for fans to have autographs signed and photos taken too.

The venue: Studio Square, 3537 36th St, Astoria, NY 11106, United States, +1 718-383-1001

Ticket Pricing: General admission $60.00 available online next week

The Christina McMahon vs Alicia Ashley fight is featured on the Maureen Shea/Luigi Olcese Pandora Promotions boxing night of the stars on 15th September.. http://boxrec.com/show/719335

The Cuchulainn Coffee Cycle

We had a lovely spin to Greenore this morning. It’s still kinda summery, if you’re lucky and I worried that the group might prefer to dine out rather than in (yes, time to get a job) and the tea rooms are very much old style and in. When we got to Bush I worried that we were too early and was pathetically grateful that Dermot offered to lead us in to Lily Finnegans and the coast. Whenever the nerves reappeared I looked at the nonchalant, confident way he led and put my faith in the moment. Later he told me he used to have his lunch down at the strand every day when he worked nearby. Jesus wept. This here runner is going to have to sit back now and again, or sit back a bit more at least.

When we got to the Greenore Coop the faster bunch were already there. I gather they went over Jenkinstown although I got a bit confused with the sequel. Ann Larkin, God bless her, had all the stops pulled out, dressed in period costume, and the tables set. Her husband Brian gave a lovely wee talk on the history of Greenore, the railway, the port, the ship that went down in 1916 - Connemara Retriever -with the loss of 94 lives. It was just fascinating and I admired the humorous, erudite way he informed us all. I didn’t hurt one bit. Then they opened the museum, Maritime upstairs and Railway downstairs and gave us our leave to follow our fancy. Not for the first time I wondered how positivity attracts positivity. When they started their little museum a Mr Harcourt, Lord Mayor of Belfast, gave them a collection of paintings he had about Greenore. A local lady, a poet, contributed a beautiful poem of longing for her native place which adorns the wall downstairs. It just comes together, but I’m not stupid enough to ignore the huge amount of work involved - “The more I practise, the luckier I get” - Arnold Palmer.

(The poet is Ann Carroll and Ann (Larkin) said she’d send me a copy. This will be on my page when I get it. Cause I can).

That was it then. We were very reluctant to leave that lovely spot. I took them around by the golf course because I wanted to get my 2 cents worth in. I learned yesterday that there were no upstairs windows in the houses facing the golf course because the bosses did not want the workers watching them playing golf. I was determined to force this knowledge on someone, in the way a good teacher does. There were only 2 people near me as we cycled past and I delivered my nugget. I should be used to that by now but 3 years out of the classroom made me forget.

We had an easy cycle home, apart from the incessant traffic. Greenore, Carlingford, Ballagan, the Lough are a cyclist’s paradise, only if you survive that awful road. Maybe the proposed cycle path from Dundalk out along the old railway line to Greenore will be a solution because Greenore is a location I think most of us would like to visit more often. Finally - thanks Ann and Brian for your welcome, thanks Dave for suggesting and researching this one, and Dermot - yer a natural born leader, God bless ya, you looked awfully well up there at the front.
